Even without being at full strength for the whole weekend, the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls tennis team had little trouble dispatching its three district opponents.
The Hilltoppers swept all three of their opponents that were able to field teams for the Pre-District 2-4A playoff this weekend. The Hilltoppers dropped the Española Valley Sundevils and Santa Fe Demons Friday, then swept the Bernalillo Spartans Saturday.
Capital, the other team in the district, only had three available players Saturday when it and Los Alamos were scheduled to meet.
The wins ensure Los Alamos as the No. 1 seed in the district tournament, which is scheduled for April 29-30 in Santa Fe. The winner of the district tournament advances to the state Class 4A playoffs the following week.
Hilltopper head coach Bruce Cottrell said he gave the Hilltoppers’ seniors Saturday off so they could get ready for prom. Missing from the lineup Saturday was one of its top singles players, Andrea Hengartner, who played in both the No. 2 and No. 3 spots Friday as well as Susanna Lucido, who was in the No. 4 singles position against the Santa Fe Demons.
